My before photo was taken July 19th, I’d just turned 44, and weighed 279 lbs. with a 50″ waist. I look anxious because I have to make a major break with the past. Last Sept. I got whooping cough and lost 15 lbs. and every scrap of muscle in 12 weeks. I was exhausted, and deeply depressed. Then I gained 33 lbs of pure fat and maxed out at 293 lbs.
When I started Extreme Boot Camp™ my modest goal was to reach 255 lbs. by Dec. 1st. The after photo is Nov. 25, I weighed 225 lbs, 54 lbs. lighter and much happier. Thanks to Linda’s incredible program, my life has completely changed for the better. I started in terrible shape, barely able to do a couple of pushups or run 100 yds. Now I comfortably run 6 mi. without stopping. My 50″ waist is now 40″ and still shrinking. I still dine out with my wife and friends several times a week, but make better choices. Extreme Boot Camp™ is not about starvation, deprivation, supplements or gimmicks of any kind.
Today marks the completion of my third Boot Camp, and it just keeps getting better. I’m still gaining strength, losing weight, and my endurance is the best it has ever been. Part of what makes Extreme Boot Camp™ so much fun is the constantly changing locations, and the way Linda varies the workouts from day to day, and week to week. And the instructors are the best! They each contribute their own specialty, whether it’s running, aerobics, yoga, weight and resistance training, even some martial arts moves. Each of the 6 to 7 instructors brings something unique to every class, and they’re all committed to your progress.
With the skills I’ve learned from Linda and her staff, I’m certain I could go anywhere and stay healthy and fit forever. But I’ll be at Extreme Boot Camp™ every morning as long as I can. Extreme Boot Camp™ has not only allowed me to exceed all my old goals, it’s changed my concept of what’s achievable.
And don’t be scared by the name, Extreme Boot Camp™. It’s the happiest, most joyful, friendly, supportive environment I’ve ever seen, with women and men of all ages and ability levels having fun, and getting strong and fit together.
